Calcium in Tablet Form - Calichew alternative?

Hi

Does anyone know of any alternatives to Calichew that can just be swallowed? I am coping fine with all of the Meds except Calichew :yuk:

Lots of calcium supplements come with extra other vitamins which I know we can't have.

Has anyone found an alternative?

Thanks

Hi there,

Calcichew have now launched an alternative preparation called the Calcichew d3 Caplet which can simply be swallowed so no more chewing tablets, ask your GP they will find it listed on the system it was launched at the back end of last year so not all GP's yet know about it.

I've been using calcium with Vit D and doc said it was fine - it's just a plain ole swallow with a glass of water type.
